The 29-year-old mum, who is in a relationship with football star Cristiano Ronaldo, suffered a heartbreaking loss in April last year when their baby boy died during childbirth.
The couple’s daughter and their son’s surviving sister, Bella Esmeralda, was born healthy.
The Ronaldo family – who were based in Manchester at the time - announced the tragedy in a statement, saying: "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel.”
In the trailer for the upcoming season, which will debut on the streaming service this month, the Argentinian-Spanish model is shown crying over the family’s loss.
Pictures of Georgina cradling Bella Esmeralda on her chest are shown on screen as she says: “Life is hard, life goes on.
“I have reasons to move on and be strong.”
Georgina praised her partner Cristiano for supporting her during the darkest period of their life together.
“Cris really encouraged me to continue with my agenda. He said, ‘Gio, get on with your life. It’ll do you good.’”
She adds: “My priority right now is my family and my children. I’m so happy and thankful…”
Georgina has been in a relationship with the Portuguese footballer since 2016.
She gave birth to their daughter, Alana Martina, in November 2017, followed by the twins in April 2022.
Her stepchildren are two sons, Cristiano Junior and Mateo and a daughter named Eva Maria.
She has had a successful modelling career, and has attended prestigious events like the Cannes and Venice film festivals.
The model has also represented brands like Sheglam Official and La Perla and has covered magazines like Cosmopolitan Spain, L'Officiel India and InStyle Spain.
Her life as a mum and the girlfriend to one of the most successful footballers is the focus of the Netflix documentary series I Am Georgina which premiered in 2022. The second season will arrive on 24 March.
The new season will include a cameo from Spanish singer Rosalia, who confesses to being a fan of Georgina’s show.
